Shhh! Don’t pump up that car so much, it’s my holy grail ,if all the stars Aline dream car.For me it would be the Boss 302. The engine itself is a collector item with unique cams, head work, HD valve train, forged pistons, sintered rods, upgraded oil pan, runner type intake, etc. Adjustable shocks, and unique suspension tuning, plus all the other Boss stuff. The Boss S-197 chassis is >400 pounds lighter than the S-550. So, power to weight is virtually the same. Granted the 19 Bullit with IRS and bigger tires has higher grip levels, but for me the transmission ratios are a disappointment. It all depends on what you like. I did up a base 11 GT for a friend, with 3:73's, for the track and with a full FP suspension, tune, X pipe and GT 500 mufflers, it keeps up with the new stuff. Good luck with your search.
ooh, GT 350 gearbox, winner ! Thanks for another great tip/idea.The Lagunas are hard to find and are asking crazy money. I'd love to have one too, but I'm not paying Bullit money for one. I'd but a Bullit and re-gear the transmission for the track, or throw at GT 350 gearbox in?
